has there ever been a study done on the effects of wifi on animal behavior, or more directly insect behavior.

my local zoo wanted to have wifi all over but now are changing there minds and said they dont want to affect the insects hatching.

I can't find anything on wifi specifically, but I did find studies about infrared and ultra low frequency being used to repel insects.

I dont think it should effect them, unless the insects are affected by electromagnetic waves (at the wifi level).

Says that theres no proof that it does hurt humans, but you never know

The zoo could shield the insects from the wifi maybe?
